Maddie "Mad Dog" Manchester used to have a pretty easy life. She lived in the White House and occasionally got into trouble with her best friend Logan, the President’s son. After a terrible accident involving some scary Russians and Logan's mom, Maddie’s father moves his family into the Alaskan wilderness. Maddie thought she’d never see Logan again, but six years later he reappears, and he's going to live with them until he learns his lesson. Maddie doesn't need Logan anymore. She is happy with her bedazzled hatchet, books, and survival skills. But when the two are kidnapped, an arduous journey puts her hard-earned skills and sparkly weapons to the test.
